Please join in with the daily RWI sessions on YouTube (link below). Each lesson is available for 24 hours so you can access it at whatever time is best for you. Each session has 3 parts which all link together, it would be fantastic if you completed each part. For set 1 sounds they should be completed in this order:

1. Speed sound lesson.

2. Word time lesson.

3. Spelling lesson.

If you are up for a challenge and already fully confident with your set 1 sounds (including writing words) you should access the set 2 sound and spelling lessons. I would be so pleased to see some of your fantastic writing, so if you could send it to the school twitter it would make me very happy.


Extra Challenge

Under the 'Phonics Games' section of the home learning page I have added different games sites for you to try, choose a link and select a phonics game to play.



As well as your reading during your phonics sessions I would love if you could read a book at home with someone, can you sound out some of the words? Can you find any tricky words? You can also access e-books on the Oxford Owl website for free! You just need to create a log in. Follow the link below and sign yourself up and select age range 4-5 and get reading! Today I am challenging you to reading a RWI book independently, today try 'Get Up!'. Can you read the words by using Fred in your head?



So we have learnt all about 2D shapes this week, to end the week I would like you to access the maths games links below. First select the geoboard link, it's just like the one we have in school but it's on the computer instead! Isn't that cool? Use the board and bands to create some shapes, can you name the shape you have made? How many corners does it have? How many sides does it have? See how many different shapes you can fit on your board. Next select the shape pattern game. We have played this in class! Can you complete the pattern? What shapes have you used? What shape comes next? Can you challenge yourself and try level 2? Or even level 3!


Expressive Arts/Being Imaginative/People and Communities

Yesterday was St George's Day, click on the link below to find out all about it. Once you know what St George's day is all about I would like you to design your own amour - this could be a shield, a sword or a piece of body amour. This could be a drawing, a painting, chalking outside or you could make it with junk modelling (cereal boxes would be perfect)! When you're done I would like you to pretend you're St George. You have to protect the land from the dragon!


Picture News

On the main home learning page I have added a section called 'Picture News' it contains information for your grown ups and some great activities for you. It will really get your brain working and I would love for you to have ago at it, possibly one small activity each day and let me know some of the ideas and thoughts you have. I will add a new picture and new activities for this each week.


Please find any links to websites I mention at the bottom of this page or on the main home learning page. 


Keep up the super work and keep sending me pictures to make me smile! I’ll be back tomorrow with more challenges for you all.
Take care, Miss Pinnington.
